State Board of Education Memo to the House and Senate Education Committees on Civics and Ethnic Studies

21 March 2018

TO: Members of the House and Senate Education Committees

CC: Sponsors of H.793 and H.794

FROM: State Board of Education

SUBJECT: In reference to H.793 and H.794

DATE: March 21, 2018

The State Board of Education shares the General Assembly's interest in promoting knowledge of civics and ethnic studies. However, we do not support the adoption of H.793 or H.794 as initially proposed.

Both bills are major departures from statute and long-established procedures for determining local curriculum, graduation requirements, and flexible pathways.
